Video: Dad writes original song for sweetest pregnancy time lapse ever

posted at 4:41 pm on March 25, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

I feel like we need this palate-cleanser after yesterday’s story about unborn babies out of the UK that was so barbaric I couldn’t even click on the original story (and used Allahpundit’s write-up to filter it for myself).

Also out of the UK, the baby in this video’s name is Buzz, and he’s already living up to it with nearly 6 million views. It’s almost as if people recognize something inherently valuable, humane, and worthy of love in what they’re seeing from the very beginning to the very end of pregnancy. How many pro-choice activists are scratching their heads about why this time lapse doesn’t start at 24-26 weeks? Congrats to the young family!

The singer/songwriter is Tom Fletcher of the British pop band, McFly. He boasts writing credits for a list of British top-20 hits, and married his childhood sweetheart Giovanna in 2012. His other super-viral video is his wedding speech, set to the tune of a bunch of his pop hits, with 12 million views. Clearly he and his wife make a great team. Lucky kid.

I sure hope he didn’t bring his guitar during conception…

Or is that video coming up?

Welcome Buzz!!!

Great family there!

Genuinely sweet. ツ

A great video concept, well-produced and edited, plus a terrific song. Bravo!

JerseyJeff on March 25, 2014 at 4:48 PM

Saw this on the youtube home page, yesterday.

For some reason it reminded me of you, Mary.

I’m not sure what the connection could be . . . . . . . . .

Well, not the VEEEERY beginning.

Baby bumps……those have brought the wife and me much happiness……welcome to the ride….hang on and enjoy!

Not really. The kids in the video are white and self-sufficient. Pro-abortionists only support abortion of poor minority babies who would be a drain on the welfare system, and probably wouldn’t be a productive member of society anyway. All are created equal, some are just more equal than others.

I’ll give him a A for effort, planning, and execution. However, on the Man scale he’s an F…or pure Beta.

This is why the Russians now own the Crimea.

Blown away! Every father and mother who truly love each other can see, in timeline, the love they have one for the other and the product of that love. FemiNazis, top that!

Hipsters…

Very touching. I especially like the kitteh that photobombs midway through.

John the Libertarian on March 25, 2014 at 5:02 PM

Beautiful

DarkCurrent on March 25, 2014 at 5:05 PM

That was really nice, just what I needed to see today. Thanks…

Cats are instinctive photobombers.

WhatSlushfund on March 25, 2014 at 5:09 PM

Tom’s address at his wedding was pretty funny and entertaining. It seems these two have chosen to live a portion of their lives in the public view via youtube.

The dude is a professional musician, living ones life in the public view is right there in big bold print at the very top the contract.

…cute…thanks!

KOOLAID2 on March 25, 2014 at 5:24 PM

palate-cleansed :D

Thanks MKH!

captnjoe on March 25, 2014 at 5:25 PM

That was absolutely beautiful!
I am your basic hard ass 62 y.o. Conservative who is not afraid of much, has had many bumps in the road that have hardened me, who looks like it. But my eyes welled up watching this video. I don’t care what this young man looks like, how he lives his profession, or what his “Man Scale” is. The guy has his head screwed on straight as an arrow.

Good grief, only on beer 20 and can’t quote, preview or type. Sheez!

March 13, 2014. Time for bed

HonestLib on March 25, 2014 at 5:44 PM

The guy’s a talented songwriter-musician, has a lovely wife and a new baby. Life is good.

whatcat on March 25, 2014 at 5:48 PM

I have seen something like that before without the music. This is just as cool. Good for them.

Real men love and support their children (and wives). Looks like a real man to me.

God bless them.

Ah, don’t be so hard on yourself. You might be that lucky some day.

Just got’a smile.

A real palate-cleanser would have been having Alien with the face of Senator McCain break out of her belly, shouting “Here’s Johnny!”

Nomennovum on March 25, 2014 at 6:19 PM

Is his middle name Lightyear by any chance?

Annielou on March 25, 2014 at 6:26 PM

Sweet but the hipster glasses really are annoying.

Happy Nomad on March 25, 2014 at 6:47 PM

So not natural

Should be some spiky haired Rachel marrow playing the guitar

That would be beautiful

OK I have something in my eye. That was beautiful.

Welcome to the world Buzz!
